Re: A request for help please

Hopefully it should be a one time fix at least?
Once you know how to access the drain, its not a difficult job.

Re: XJ40 4.0 re-birth.

Very nice. Why they did not fit a cover on these pre 93 cars i don't know.

Re: L992RVC Moroccan xjr

Apparently its a one time use special nut, rather costly at ~£20 but I've replaced mine when replaced uni joint, heard quite few stories of these getting undone when reused. It’s documented on this forum from a few members I think. Risky business. £...

Re: 91 Solent Blue XJR

I think it’s inevitable with most 40s needing significant work to bring them to a very high standard. It’s clear you have the perfectionist tendencies! So either way I think it’s £5,000-£10,000+ to get a car to those standards now. Whether that’s spending a big wedge do buy “the best on the market”,...

Re: Original Radio Fixing. need help..

Re: A new home for a Daimler in Switzerland

Thank you for your replies: I picked up my Daimler yesterday evening. The garage told me that the fuel pump was somehow damaged and they have replaced I just realised your car is an 89-90 4.0, so it has the external fuel pump.
